doubling row spacing

Catalogue: GRDC Factsheets
Although row spacing is a relatively simple thing to change, the effect on the whole farm system can be complex and can influence yield, time of sowing, machinery, herbicide, and seed and fertiliser costs, as well as the types of crops sown... Doubling the row spacing from 18 to 36cm resulted in a two per cent loss in yield in barley and a five per cent loss in wheat... Wider row spacing increases the concentration of nutrients per metre of row if the rate per hectare is maintained...
